Lex and Heather Williams now have two Homfield trophies sitting side-by-side in their living room.

One of them was won by One Over Kenny in 2005 and the other by her son One Over Da Moon at Tabcorp Park Melton on Friday night.

“It’s pretty cool that he managed to win the same race his mother did,” said co-owner and breeder, Lex Williams, who travelled over to Australia to watch him race on Friday.

“It definitely was a huge thrill,” he added.

One Over Da Moon is being trained by Chris Lang during his Australian Campaign. Lang also did the driving on the three-year-old Majestic Son colt on Friday.

“He is on a round trip and will return to Paul Nairn after the Australasian Breeders Crown,” advised Williams.

One Over Da Moon was given a nice run in the one-one by Chris Lang, before coming three-wide around the final bend and powering away to win by 2.4 metres over Guiltless and Daenerys Targaryen , who also found the line well.

Favourite Twentyten faded to finish last after racing parked outside the leader.

“Chris Lang said he may be small but he doesn’t feel it when you are sitting behind him,” said Williams.

Although Williams and wife Heather were at Tabcorp Park Melton on Friday to soak up the atmosphere, he was extremely disappointed that the race wasn’t televised back in New Zealand.

“There were three horses with Kiwi connections in the race, so I think it is absolutely disgraceful that the race wasn’t shown live,” he concluded.
